This review is from: Claymore 16 (Paperback)
This sixteenth volume of the `Claymore' manga sees Clare and her group encounter Clare's old controller and gain some surprising information on himself and Riful's current goals. Meanwhile Helen and Deneve encounter a group of Claymores on an awakened one hunt and gain a new comrade which leads to a fateful encounter with a Creature of the Abyss and another, deadlier, foe.

This is another really good volume of `Claymore' which continues with the excellent battles and also adds greatly to the current plot and sets things up for the future. The plot itself is looking very interesting and the introduction of the Organisation's new weapon is good, they are both creepy and interesting. Things are definitely looking good for the series and I cannot wait to continue reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars The next generation, 12 Aug. 2012

This review is from: Claymore 16 (Paperback)
Another volume in the Claymore series. This a manga comic that tells of a land where humans live in fear of demonic creatures. The only defence against them are the Claymores. A group of women with Big swords and special powers who work for a mysterious organisation.

This follows the same format as the other volumes in that it's an A5 sized paperback, containing one hundred and eighty nine pages of black and white artwork. It's divided into six chapters. And you read in the traditional manga fashion of right to left.

This is not a good jumping on point. New readers should start with book one. And anyone who has seen the anime version of this but not read any of the books should start with volume eleven.

This volume continues the story on from the end of book fifteen, which saw Clare run into her old handler. The beginning of this see him impart some information to her which adds more depth and intrigue to one element of the story. And more depth to him as a character as well. She is left with some tricky choices.

We then get back to another plotline that was started in book fifteen, and which is advanced slightly.

But the bulk of this one focuses on Helen and Deneve. As they run into another Claymore. An awakened one. And find once again how things have changed in the time they were away. And what the organisation has unleashed.

Once again a big fight scene takes up a lot of this, but it's a very memorable one because of what is involved. This leads to some very creepy and disturbing moments. And a major plot development.

The new Claymore is an interesting character who makes a good impression on the reader.

And the volume ends with the promise of more major plot developments, and a big cliffhanger.

With so many characters and storylines in this series now you don't get to see everyone, but you probably won't mind.

Another great volume in this series, and another that will make you desperate to find what happens next.
